Our GE Profile refridgerator has had a persistent chemical smell for the past 3 weeks, smells almost like lighter fluid or a BBQ grill. The smell started before we had food in the fridge so that is not the culprit, but soon after we had our hardwood floors refinished. The polyurethane smell from the floors was strong throughout the house for 2 weeks after being refinished and has since dissapated, however the fridge still has a lighter fluid-esque odor that gets into the food, ice, etc. Could the fridge odor be related to the floors, or is there a problem with the fridge? Thanks
I have the same problem and is not related to floor. Someone mentioned possible ice dispenser motor.
We had our floors refinished and are experiencing the exact same thing! What did you do to fix this? We have emptied the ice tray and cleaned it out,. It's now been about a week post polly. Ice still smells!
Has anyone determined the time frame for the smell and ice cube taste to clear? Ours started shortly after we had our hardwood floors done as well.
I would not put up with that from a brand new refrigerator. You need to call the folks you bought it from and have them fix it. That's ridiculous.
